Baltimore, (April 25, 2018) – The CEOs of the winning companies and their teams came out to celebrate CEO Report’s Velocity Growth Awards, sponsored by Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel and Pure Light Images on April 19th in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Guests enjoyed networking, cocktails and dinner before the winning companies accepted awards presented by CEO of Velocity Business Media Jim McDonald, Baltimore Market Manager Emily Moles, and Director of Events Michelle Boyles. “We see a diverse ethos in Baltimore that is evidenced by the variety of sectors represented in tonight’s winners,” said McDonald. “In the fields of technology, real estate, non-profit, finance, engineering, communications, health care and more, we see companies here that are not just keeping up, they are going above and beyond to ensure that Baltimore will continue to compete on a national and global scale.”

The evening ended with the announcement of CEO Report’s 2018 Growth Story of the Year, UPIC Health. “Tonight’s winner was chosen because of their impressive year, growing in both revenue and employees at a rapid pace,” said Roy White, President and CEO of Diverse Concepts, which sponsored the Growth Story of the Year. “The ability to network and to monetize referrals, combined with their CEO’s strong background in customer service technology are key ingredients in their success.”
